Everthing Ends

I’m moving my blog from wordpresss to my own blogging platform.
I will be using gists to hold my posts and serve it with a custom django server at http://joelewis.herokuapp.com.
Let me see how far this might roll and meanwhile, I’ve got my story to tell.
My graduation projecy met its other end in the most blunt way possible.
I’ve already written a page long story about ithere and presented it for examination today.

This is what happened.
We discuss a lot of things on how to present the project, the most impressive way. I grab my broken specs and the report, that weighs almost 80 pages of meaningless scribbles and barge into the classroom in haste along with #Benjamin and #Maharaja.
“Go straight to the modules part” says the external.
We, skip through the slides to the modules part, with a little pain seeing them go useless.
“So this is how the project is divided…”, I started and on it went with us trying to grab the external’s focus while He constantly looks at his watch, awaiting his delicious lunch.
“So, how many more batches, we have sir?”, the external asks our staff, counting his time delay for ‘lunching’.
We at the other end, project our screenshots of how we implied the algorithm to categorize news feeds in an android device.
By this time, we pretty much gained his focus on us.
“Enda center la pa paneenga?”, he questions and we said its built in-house with a slight tone of pride.
He never minds. After his brief advice to extend the project to implement a lie detector (which was in no way, not even remotely comaparable with out project), he says good and it comes to an end. THE END.
No, questions on how we did it. No, questions on what technologies we used. No, not even were we asked to show the project. It got to the end over a wink.
Well, this is anna university’s model for examining projects. No offense, but I spelt anna university as not-a-noun, and failed to capitalize it on purpose. No, it doesn’t deserve capitalization. Not even in alphabets.
God help future Engineers, especially from Anna University affliates.
